I absolutely loved this book. The Pleasure of His Company: A Journey to Intimate Friendship With God, helped me draw closer to my Father after realizing more how He wants us to spend time with Him; quiet, uninterrupted time with Him. My mind cannot wrap around the King of the Universe wanting a relationship with me. But I’m grateful He does. It gives God pleasure to spend time with His children. Any father should desire to spend time with their children and God is no different.

The Pleasure of His Company is about closeness with God by seeking His heart. Who doesn’t want that? There are 30 chapters with a wonderful prayer at the end of each. The prayers are taken from Scripture. Many of the chapters strongly spoke to me and it was exactly what I needed at the time. I love when that happens!
I enjoyed the many Bible references and stories that we’ve all heard but Mr. Sheets brought many of them to life. I especially loved the word studies he included. It helped make sense of many of the verses and stories from the Bible.
Chapter 20, The Lingerers, was my favorite and it stirred something in me. The author mentions allowing only certain people into his heart. God is like that too. God will allow many in His presence but more selective with His heart. “His presence is free, but His heart will cost you time and effort.” Not everyone will take the time and effort to know God’s heart.
Mr. Sheets writes with humor, shares life lessons and tells Bible stories in a way you can relate to your life. Many of the chapters have changed my life, if not the entire book.
